After finishing my dash area I bolted the steering column back up under the dash. I can move it sideways back and forth about 1/8". Both nuts are tight. Is this the way it is supposed to be? Thanks,
Gary

Are the four copper looking 1/2 bolts tight on the steering bracket?

All fastners are tight. I am thinking that it is just flex in the support rods down from the top of the dash. Anyone else with ideas?

I see the column move back and forth inside the steering column cover under the dash. The cover has about 1/4" clearance all around so I can see how much it moves. Maybe this is not a big deal and how they are supposed to be.

solid no movement. At least mine doen't move when the bolts are tight (two at the bracket/support and the four to the bracket/columb).
